Flapjacks are a great energy-packed snack for a lunch box or picnic. Here’s an easy recipe for a soft and chewy flapjack.  For crunchier flapjacks, leave in the oven for another 5-10 minutes.  Try adding chopped dried apricots, cranberries or sultanas to the recipe for a yummy variation.

You will need:

  • 125g butter
  • 100g soft dark brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 250g oats (we used a 50:50 mixture of jumbo rolled oats and finer quick oats)

How to make flapjacks:

  • Mix the butter, sugar and golden syrup over a gentle heat until the butter is melted.
  • Stir in the oats and mix well.
  • Rub a little butter over a baking tin with kitchen paper and then press the flapjack mix down into the tin.
  • Bake in the oven at 180 degrees for 20 minutes (longer for crunchier flapjacks).
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes then score cuts into the warm flapjack with a sharp knife.
  • Once completely cool, remove the flapjacks from the baking tin.
  • Store in an airtight container.
